  • Returning to the Path of Human: St. Petersburg to Host Lighting Design International Conference

    “No matter how much we talk about the progress and the synthesis of technologies, no magic will happen until there is one irreplaceable component – a human being,” says Denis Astakhov, CEO of Avocado Toast, of the main idea behind the international scientific-practical conference “Lighting Design” in 2019. We stand on the brink of the Russian lighting industry development, where previous approaches lose their relevance. While some companies anticipate changes, and others try to solve short-term problems, there are those who look to the future and consider the possibility of creating a comfortable lighting environment in the context of digitalization. Organized by ITMO University together with the State Hermitage Museum and the ARCHCLUB social and professional project, the “Lighting Design” conference will be dedicated to this particular topic, as well as the role of humans in the lighting industry development.
